Home performance articles and stories from the field with internationally respected building forensics guru Corbett Lunsford at the Building Performance Workshop. Hear new episodes of the Building Performance Podcast, see new videos from the Home Performance YouTube channel, and learn all about how diagnostic testing (more than an 'Energy Audit') can make home improvement and new home construction a proven process!
Meet Dr. Paula Olsiewski, the Orchestrator of HOMEChem. More at: https://HomeDiagnosis.tv/homechem
Meet Dr. Marina Vance, the Skeptic of HOMEChem. More at: https://HomeDiagnosis.tv/homechem Dr. Vance's research is focused on air quality, particularly on measuring emissions and understanding the dynamics of aerosols in the context of ambient and indoor air quality.
Corbett talks through the basis of design for his family's upcoming house construction in Atlanta, GA. Subscribe to stay tuned for videos during the build! To learn more about the high performance building products being used, click below:

Meet Dr. Richard Corsi, the Frontiersman of HOMEChem.
Richard L. Corsi is Chair of the Department of Civil, Architectural and Environmental Engineering at the University of Texas at Austin and holds the Joe J. King Chair in Engineering #2. He is a Distinguished Alumnus of Humboldt State University (2006) and of the College of Engineering at UC Davis (2016). Dr. Corsi’s research focuses on sources, fate, human exposure and innovative control strategies related to indoor air quality. In recent years his team has focused significantly on indoor ozone chemistry and the nexus of building energy conservation and indoor air quality. He currently oversees a large grant to study indoor air quality in high schools and to develop low cost solutions to related problems for school districts.
